Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR)

The GVWR of the 1500 can vary depending on which configuration you opt for. This includes your chosen bed length, and crew cab or quad cab models:

  • 2019 RAM 1500 Tradesman: Between 6,800 lbs and 7,100 lbs
  • 2019 RAM 1500 Big Horn: Between 6,800 lbs and 6,900 lbs

What’s the Difference Between Curb Weight and GVWR?

The impact of passengers, equipment, and towing weight are not included in the curb weight of a vehicle. The GVWR is the maximum weight you can have in the vehicle and still be safe. This includes the passengers, cargo, vehicle weight, and tongue weight if you’re towing. It’s worth noting, however, that tongue weight and towing capacity are two different things. Tongue weight is the weight that is placed on the hitch by the trailer. In simplest terms, gross vehicle weight rating can be thought of as the maximum amount of weight the vehicle and its contents should ever weigh.

Towing Capacity

The RAM 1500 towing capacity is nothing to scoff at. When you upgrade to the V8 engine, this truck is capable of towing up to 12,750 lbs, meaning you won’t have to leave anything behind when you’re towing through Pearland. This upgraded model will also award you impressive technology that will keep you feeling steady and safe while driving thanks to the following features:

  • Available 4×4 Off-Road Package
  • 360 degree Surround View Camera
  • Active-Level™ Four Corner Air Suspension
  • Blind Spot Monitoring with Rear Cross Path and Trailer Detection

You can load up and hit the road without looking back when you choose a RAM 1500 – no second trip necessary!
